Adult Reading Passport:

“Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are”. Whilst restrictions on travel remain in place, there is still the chance to escape to foreign lands between the pages of a great book. Mountmellick Library will be doing a reading passport promotion in September/October for adults. Just read four books based in any other country or city and on completion of the passport adults will be entered in a draw for a token.  Call 0578644572 for further details.

For more information about any of our events, please feel free to contact the library at 05786-44572. And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook!
